Jumping on tables and singing to his parents’ friends since he was five years old, whether the gig is in front of five people or five thousand people, Rhys just loves to perform whilst interacting with his audience.

Rhys provided us with an absolutely amazing performance at our wedding. He is a true professional and was fantastic to deal with during the very stressful lead up to the big day. He really paid attention to what we wanted and ensured the music matched the style of our wedding perfectly. We had so many comments from our guests expressing how much they enjoyed Rhys' performance. We were actually disappointed that we had to leave for our photos and didn't get to stay an enjoy the full performance. Rhys has an amazing voice and is a very talented musician and entertainer. We would definitely recommend Rhys to anyone, not only for weddings, but for any type of function... you will not be disappointed!
